Erasmus+ Study

Would you like to take part in a study placement to Europe?

If so then the Erasmus+ programme is for you. A placement will normally take place during Year 2 (Level 5) of your studies. 

Overseas study placements are a great opportunity to improve your employability prospects, by gaining valuable experience in another country, as well as offering a fantastic chance to experience another culture, meet new people and make future contacts.  You will have the chance to learn another language or improve on the language skills you already have.  

Funding is available to support your travel and living costs in Europe, via the Erasmus+ scheme.
